american politics." let's hear from jackson, mississippi, jason, republican caller. caller: thank you. there was a couple of really somewhat offensive and i think probably logical fallacies that occurred and i need further explanation so do the listeners. when the claim was state add few moments ago about the title 5 in saying that it's, quote, clearly needed, an example of that, for instance, more than 50% of white voters in mississippi voted for president obama. that's a logical fallacy. the claim doesn't support the supposition. the question would really be, what is the proof then without sort of the biases, the nature of political bias, for these claims. the heritage fellow stated that real claims are against, for instance, alabama, haven't been present or credible. i really don't understand why it's sort of making me feel like i'm listening to a radio show from the 1950's when in fact it was 2013. host: mr. berman for a response. guest: you look for example at a town in mississippi, in 2001 it was a majority black town. but the governing board, the mayor and city council, was all
